Drama: Abraham's visitors
Alternative narration of the story (for children)
One day Abraham was sitting by his tent. Suddenly he looked up and saw three visitors standing there. He ran to meet them.
Hello! Please don't go any further, stay here for a bit. I will go and find something for you to eat.
1st visitor (bowing)
2nd visitor (bowing)
That would be very nice.
3rd visitor (bowing)
Yes, we are tired after our journey.
Abraham hurried back to the tent, and spoke to Sarah, his wife.
Please make some cakes quickly and please make sure they are the best you can make!
Then Abraham hurried to find something else to eat. He asked the servants:
Please will you cook something really tasty for our visitors?
We will cook some meat.
We will do it quickly.
The servants cooked the meat, and Sarah made the cakes. They brought the food out to the visitors, who sat and ate. Then one of the visitors asked:
Where is your wife Sarah?
She is in the tent.
Soon your wife Sarah will have a baby son.
And the Bible tells us that Sarah laughed when she heard this, because she was too old to have a baby!
